Testing Timeline

The recommended 2015 PSAT/NMSQT test date is Wednesday, Oct. 14. The PSAT 10 will be offered between Feb. 22 and March 4, 2016. The PSAT 8/9 will be offered in fall 2015 and spring 2016. Ordering deadlines vary by exam, season, testing window, and school location. View important dates for all exams.

PSAT-related assessment ordering begins in mid-April when the registration announcement is mailed to schools and districts and test coordinators can start placing orders.

Before tests, contract districts can use Bulk Registration to submit registration information electronically and securely. Users will be able to print pre-identification labels for student answer sheets, saving time on test day. Learn more about bulk registration.

Scores are released about two months after the assessment is administered. For the first administration of the redesigned PSAT/NMSQT in October 2015, scores will be released approximately three months after the test.

District- and State-Level Data

Put the SAT Suite of Assessment’s integrated online reporting portal to work increasing access, identifying skill gaps, and improving instruction across your district. All data points and analysis reports available to schools will also be available at the district and state levels. Raw data files can also be downloaded for import into district and state systems.

District access to AP Potential is also included. AP Potential helps districts grow their AP programs by identifying students likely to succeed in AP courses and exams. Learn more about AP Potential, the only tool of its kind.

State Standards

The skills tested on the PSAT-related assessments complement state education standards. State alignment reports, available from your regional representative, map scores, including subscores, to standards. Use them to identify the skills your students should focus on as they prepare for state assessments and college.

Inclusive Testing

Join more than 350 districts and states in the Early Participation Program (EPP). This initiative is designed to increase access to college by engaging younger students in the college-going process.
